Welcome
  • "Her creative odyssey provides a fascinating illustration of the high road to mastery that transcends the limitations of genre...a vocalist of theatrical depth and consummate syllabic invention. Ever since her debut with Warne Marsh at the Village Vanguard, audiences have marvelled at the grace with which Niemack scats."

Jazz Vocal Standards
I'm happy to announce that my book, "Jazz Vocal Standards" was released by Hal Leonard in Spring of 2008.  It's an introduction to jazz singing and vocal improvisation with ballads, bossa-nova, samba, and medium swing grooves.

Each title on the CD has a vocal version and a play along track. The vocal tracks are in female-friendly keys when you play it on a CD player, but
when you play it on a computer, it automatically opens software that allows you to change both keys and tempos.

My Artistshare online lesson about "Funny Valentine" can be practiced with the play-along included in this volume.

Hear It and Sing It! Exploring Modal Jazz
Here's the book my ArtistShare vocal improvisation lessons are based on. You don't need any theoretical knowledge to take the online lessons offered here,  but if you'd like to delve more deeply into vocal improvisation, the book will provide you with lots of information and a 70 minute practice CD.

"Hear It and Sing It!" offers the most basic yet potentially effective way to learn vocal jazz theory and scaling."

Jazztimes, Jazz Education Guide 2008/09

 "Intelligent and well-conceived. The CD is great--a useful practice tool--and Judy's beautiful singing is a fabulous model for other singers!"
Michele Weir, Vocal Jazz Improvisation

"Finally, a clear explanation and demonstration of the use of modes! This book fills a huge void in vocal-jazz education."
Dan Haerle, The Jazz Language

"An excellent textbook...the exercises are vocalist-friendly yet challenging, and the accompaniment is superb."
Darmon Meader, New York Voices
